for more political battles ahead. after last night's vote, president obama attempted to draw a line in the sand on one of the big fights coming up next, a showdown over the debt ceiling. >> while i will negotiate over many things, i will not have another debate with this congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they've already wracked up through the laws they passed. let me repeat, we can't not pay bills that we've already incurred. if congress refuses to give the united states government the ability to pay these bills on time, the consequences for the entire global economy would be catastrophic. far worse than the impact of a fiscal cliff. people will remember back in 2011, the last time this course of action was threatened, our entire recovery was put at risk. consumer confidence plunged, business investment plunged, growth dropped. we can't go down that path again. >> the president draws a line on one of the upcoming fights. joining us now is mike allen to review a little bit about what happened yesterday. mike, we were not sure there would be a vote at some po

to stop them, especially in 2010, under the obama administration, when they took a very hands off attitude saying we're not going to get involved in the outcome of the iraqi political debate, we just want a free and fair election. well, to my mind, that is a mistake. it's proven to be a mistake in practice allowing, essentially, pro-iranian elements to seize power in iraqi, but it's really a mistake not made by the fore bearers in the days of the cold war. in the early days of the cold war, the truman and eisenhower administration did not take the attitude, we don't care if communism comes to power in france, italy, or japan, as long as there's fair elections, that's all we care about. that was not their attitude. in fact, they were willing to pour covert american funds into political campaigns which, on some level could be seen as prejudice to the free and fair elections, which i think they under correctly to be in the long term interest to preserve democracy and freedom in those countries. we have to rethink the checks we put on our behavior today where we are terrified of having the cia
